I'm getting an error while installing ANSYS 14 Products: There was a problem starting the GUI. Please set your DISPLAY correctly or use the silent install (-silent).
I'm asking you for help, have anyone got this problem too? Also I have no idea how to use the silent install.
Thanks in advance for any reply (if there will be any).

By assuming you are on Linux, it means you are trying to start a GUI with no desktop. If you are connecting through SSH, look in your software help to allow X-forwarding and setup Xming on your computer to get the X window.
If you have only a local console session, use the silent install as described in the Ansys Setup Guide pdf.
If you are in a local desktop session and having this issue, just type
export DISPLAY=:0.0
but this should be already set otherwise your computer will have a lot of issues.
Best regards

Well, i'm not on Linux, i'm on Windows 7 64bit and so is the Fluent version i'm trying to install. This is the webstie I got the program from
With this pdf:
I tried to perform silent installation but with no success. Silent Installation is described in chapter 4.2, I followed the instructions but I'm not really sure if I did eveything correctly. Then I tried this command in Run menu:
"<path of the setup file>\setup.exe -silent"
still there was no result.
If you could tell what am I doing wrong maybe somehow I could defeat this problem.
Thank you anyway
